Safety Not Guaranteed & many more New Releases for October 30

This week’s gigantic batch of new releases has indie comedies, family fare, lots of foreign films (especially from India), a bunch of new Blu-rays (including fifteen by Alfred Hitchcock), one big video game, and much more. Get comfortable. Here’s the looong list:


BLU = Also available to rent on Blu-ray disc

3D BLU = Available for rent on lovely 3D Blu-ray, though you must have a 3D TV to experience the full glory.

SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED—A magazine writer and two interns head to the Washington coast to answer a classified ad seeking a companion for time travel in this funny, honest film that's made even better by its great cast, including Jake Johnson, Aubrey Plaza, Kristen Bell, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Lynn Shelton, and Mark Duplass as the would-be time traveler. And it was made right here in Seattle.  BLU  @
